It's the miracle of financing.
Katz will eventually have paid for a substantial portion of the arena just as Replacement eventually paid down his first mortgage.
If you need to know I paid a subtantial portion, 1/3 cost, in cold hard cash. At the time of purchase the minimum amount I would have had to pay up front to purchase, legal fees, and obtain a mortgage would have been around 10% I did more than that because I wanted to reduce my mortgage payments and I could.
The bank never paid me back 2M in advertising/yr, I didn't have any "naming rights" and/or other revenue from the facility and the city didn't offer to pay for the property my house sits on.
Yeah, exactly the same..
